Histidine

What is Histidine?

Histidine is one of the 20 amino acids used by the body to build proteins. It plays a vital role in various physiological processes and is considered an essential amino acid for dogs, cats, and horses, meaning it must be obtained through their diet.

Why we would use it for pet products?

Histidine is used in pet products to support overall health. It's essential for the growth and repair of tissues, maintaining the myelin sheath around nerve cells, and promoting the synthesis of histamine, which is crucial for immune responses. Incorporating histidine into pet products ensures they receive this essential amino acid in their diet.

Where can histidine be found in nature?

Histidine is found in many protein-rich foods, such as meat, fish, dairy products, and some grains. It's naturally present in the muscles of animals and serves as a fundamental building block for proteins.

Did You Know?

Histidine plays a unique role in the production of histamine, a compound associated with allergic responses. In dogs and cats, histamine can lead to allergy symptoms like itching and sneezing. Interestingly, histidine, which contributes to histamine synthesis, can also be used to counteract allergic reactions through antihistamine medications, providing relief for pets suffering from allergies.
